WilleLW (265) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
Dark brown colour. Light flavour of hops and maybe red berries and some caramel. Taste of roasted malts, some hops and some caramel. Almost a vinous feeling which surprises me for this kind of beer. Although a little watery body. Some dark chocolate is there as well.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown colour with an off-white head. Refreshing aroma with toffee, some roasted malts and some hops.The mouthfeel was somewhat watery and just a hint of sourness. Taste is some roasted malts, toffee and molasses. The finish is dry, a little salty and with some hops. A bit too thin-bodied.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle. Pours clear, dark, reddish brown. Minimal malt aromas, flavors of caramel and lightly roasted malts. A bit of smoke or chocolate roast. Not all that complex, and aroma couldve been much stronger, but at the very least, succeeds in being what macro brown ales only try to be.

Great brown ale with a nice dark brown color and medium white head, way more hops than other brown ales ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Welley_Alves (261) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - FEB 3, 2013
Otima Brown ale americana, com lupulagem bem maior que as equivalentes britânicas. Aroma de café/chocolate, porém com interessantes notas cítricas do lúpulo americano. Corpo médio, talvez poderia ser mais encorpada. Mas nada que tire a intrigante combinação de cítrico com malte torrado dessa ótima cerveja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Cloudy dark brown color beige head that fades. Good lacing but quiet carbonation. An admirable look to this beer. Tangerine citrus smell and a malt presence. A complex and textured aroma thats very hard to describe. Sweet malt taste is foremost flavor along with nut. The palate is somewhat heavy and oily. A lack of bold hops leaves this ale unbalanced and inferior to english standard bearers.

Excellent head retention; deep, dark color. Roast and chocolate smell. Smooth, even taste. Excellent flavor. Robust, yet easy to drink.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 16, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Bottle. Was actually brown which I liked as many other brown ales are black. Had a decent head as well. The brown ale had a nice roasted smell. Sweet, malty taste with hints of coffee and caramel. Slightly bitter in the finish but not to bad. A good beer all round.

From a 12oz bottle. Cant believe I havent rated this one yet. Small white head, deep brown. What you need to know about this one vs. any other: more malt with an undertone of mocha. Balance is also phenomenal, as it doesnt veer towards the overly heavy feel that characterizes too many brown ales. Another respectable offering from Brooklyn.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle at home. Ruby brown with almost no head. Faint metallic aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Watery feel with sweet flavour of coffee and cola, rounded off with some bitterness.
